Abstract

The Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a severe form of erythema multiforme associated with multiple organ involvement that can result in severe mortality. There are many etiologic factors including drugs, infection, or stress ; but accurate pathogenesis is still obscure. Treatments are composed of the removal of possible etiologic factors, symptomatic and supportive treatment. We experienced a case of Stevens-Johnson syndrome with involvement of generalized skin, oral mucosa, and eye involvement. This patient was treated by symptomatic and preventive method including corticosteroid, antihystamine, and opthalmic treatment.
